  1. Create the thread in the forum where you like to have the redirect later.
  2. "Move" (moderator action via Thread Tools link) the thread to its destination forum.
  3. Moderation Dialog (a modal) asks you if you want to leave a redirect.
  4. Chose "permanent redirect"
Done.

PS: This only works with different forums. In the same forum you just could make two threads and link them manually via BBCode. But I think you meant different forums (as "topics").

I never tried to move threads and leave redirects multiple times. Try that. Start with Forum A and make the thread, then move it from forum to forum and always leave a permanent redirect. See what happens then, I can not say if it works, but it's the only idea I have.
